Rally supports Santa Fe’s sanctuary city status

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – Dozens of community leaders and local groups held a rally supporting Santa Fe’s sanctuary city status. They came together at 4 p.m. outside City Hall.

This came after President-elect Donald Trump’s promises to cancel federal funding to sanctuary cities nationwide.

Santa Fe is the only sanctuary city in the state, meaning police won’t look into a suspect’s immigration status for minor offenses.

Last month, Santa Fe’s mayor told KRQE News 13 they’ll wait and see what actually happens when Donald Trump takes office.

Wednesday night dozens of community members rallied in support.

Community members and local lawmakers spoke at the rally backing the City’s policies that they say treats everyone equally.
